STYLE FOR LESS: JanSport's Right Pack vs. Team Manila's 365 Bag

THE SPLURGE: JanSport's Right Pack (Php4,290)

Who hasn't heard, or owned for that matter, a good, sturdy JanSport backpack?  Owned by the VF Corporation, one of the world's largest appareal companies, JanSport has been servicing their customers since the 1960s by providing durable products to the market.  They are also known for their lifetime warranties.

Purchase one of their more well-known designs, the Right Pack, sort of a modern take on their orginal vintage classic backpack, for Php4,290.

THE STEAL: 365 Bag by Team Manila (Php1,480)

For an almost identical look, you can also try the 365 bag by Team Manila, selling for Php1,480 only.  A steal compared to the original JanSport.  Plus you get to support our local artisans!  =)

  1. The Jansport Right Pack simplifies traveling considerably, being available in a straight cut design. The SuperBreak has a large primary compartment with useful pockets which make carrying things easier. While the bag from JanSport may not have fanciful features like a hip belt or pockets to stack in your water bottle, it is affordable and comes from one of the best rated manufacturers in the market. There is ample room in the bag for carrying textbooks and school supplies.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
